Many new glass attachment designs have evolved since the introduction of tempered safety glass, as a result of its high strength, as well as its compatibility with heat-curing adhesives. Attachment methods include bonding, grooves in glass for frame retention, and holes through which bolted, plastic riveted, and pinned fasteners are secured. This paper discusses each of these methods in detail, noting that the expanding plastic rivet offers the most promise for the future.
